A Letter to my Seminary and Institute Students
by Louis Herrey
My dear young friends,
This week I had the chance to meet with several of you. As always, it is a joy to be around you. I deeply appreciate not only your attendance, but also your participation. You might not think your comments matter that much, but believe me, your words are a strength to me and to your classmates. I feel like I want to become a better person because of you.
I see the goodness in your faces; you have an honest desire to come closer to Jesus and grow in truth and light. All I want to say to that is: continue. Continue to walk in the light of your Savior, trusting Him with every step you take, showing gratitude each day for the grace that He gives you.
My heart is full, and there are many things I want to tell you.
- Question: Does Doctrine and Covenants 98:31 justify the murder of one’s personal enemies?
- Book Review: “Sustaining the Law: Joseph Smith’s Legal Encounters”
- Question: Was there an oath in a former version of the Mormon temple endowment that required vengeance upon the government of the United States?
- Question: Why did the 1835 Doctrine and Covenants include a statement of marriage that denied the practice of polygamy at a time when some were actually practicing it?
- Question: Where is Zion located since the Mormons were driven out of Missouri?
